NEXT MEETING …    7:30pm 26th September 2019

Guest Speaker: Stephen Banks 
“Dorset as you have never seen it before”

Stephen moved to Dorset nearly 10 years ago and was immediately struck by the clarity of the night sky.  Soon, he had created two time-lapse films, Bridport by Night and later, Dorset by Night.

By the way, sorry if some of our jargon isn’t clear! We use PDI (Projected Digital Image) to mean jpg images that conform to our entry requirements which are simply those that fit into our 1600 pixels wide and 1200 pixels high maximum limits. We will have a pre-meeting workshop to explain all this at 6:45pm in the small committee room on our next club night, Thursday 26th September. Just turn up on the night and we hope to cover both PDIs and Print requirements.

[Note some clubs use the term DPI instead of PDI: we prefer PDI to prevent any confusion with “dots per inch”. (And for those expecting to be told to use a particular “dpi” such as 72 or 300, this value does not matter when used on our projector. If you are concerned set it to 300dpi.]

Even if you are not yet ready to enter any Prints or any PDIs, you are always welcome to have a go “to break the ice” or if you prefer, please just talk with Helen or Chris about the photos you might like to submit. There is no pressure to enter competitions (except perhaps for our light-hearted Ladies v Gents) but most people find entering rewarding and helps to have impartial feedback. Don’t worry if your early scores are at the lower end: we all do from time to time except for one or two extremely talented members!
